Ever wonder why the names of so many Cronic figures end with "Asu"? We've got Maverasu, Zyurai Asu, and Bakurasu.
I asked Koiwa-san a few months ago over a bowl of ramen in Shibuya. He told me "Asu" is the first character of his wife's name. So, the character made its way into the names of several of his figures.
Pretty cool story, hmm? :O)
